Bloody Olympics!

By THE FINAL EDITION
Bloody Olympics!

The 2012 London Olympics begin this Friday in the East End of London and a lot of London's East Enders (aka Cockneys) aren't feeling too patriotic about them.  TFE got together with legendary Python Terry Jones reprising his brilliant Mother of Brian character, recast from Biblical times to the present as Brick Lane Bertha -- a much put-upon citizen of the East End.  

Optional Glossary for non-Cockneys: "quid" - pound sterling; "the filth" - East End street-slang for the Metropolitan Police; "NHS" - National Health Service: "chips" - French Fries; "Rapier missile": small tactical missile which the British Army has mounted on top of apartment buildings in the East End to combat possible terrorist attacks; "tosser" - jerk-off (or if you're really mid-Lantic: wanker).
